Repaint panel after open saved serialized array
so i saved a serialized .txt file of my drawingpanel, which is covered in car objects drawn by mousepressed and their colors depend on which jradiobutton is selected uptop.
once i save the file, and i can also open it up, how do i repaint the panel in regards to how the file has saved it. do i have to return the array, or what?
if need to see code, ill post, but more looking for an idea to go with. already have everything as far as code up to this point.
thank you so much in advance
